I am assuming that by lifter you are referring to a bike jack.
If so raise the bike and but a block of wood or something under the back tire and lower the bike. Block needs to be just high enough for you to get the jack out from under the bike. I would suggest someone to assist with this for safety. You don't want to drop the bike.

I just installed the Air Ride with stock bones last week. It is very low when at its lowest position, but it doesn't contact the rear fender. It looks like it has about 3" or more lowering bones on it when in the lowest (deflated) position. I aired it up to where the edge of the rear fender was about 1" below the edge of the rim. Then on my test ride, I was scraping the bottom of the bike in turns. I found that the shock was adjusted for a very soft ride. When I adjusted the shock for a firmer ride the bottoming stopped. Right now I have it adjusted for a comfortable ride and lowered to the edge of the rim (no black tire showing) and it is great in that position.:bigthumbsup: If I decide to do some really aggressive riding I would raise it to the highest position to avoid scraping my Roadhouse exhaust. Hope this helps.

Redbull one more thing. When you remove your rear seat or rear cowl what ever the bike has on it toward the rear of the fender there are two dome allen bolts that hold the fender down on the rear of the bike.These protrude through the fender and if you ride at the lowest setting and bottom out on a bump you will cut 2 nice rings in your rear tires.


Solutions are:
1. Grind them down or hack them off with a saw or dremel tool.
2. Buy shorter bolts.
3. Swap them for the cowl or seat hold down bolts.

Have fun and post pics of your ride when your done :bigthumbsup:

:agree: If you have your stock bones, when you lower your arnott, you will not rub anything. There are two bolts in your rear fender that may scrape your tire, leaving two grooves your tire. All you have to do is remove these two bolts and cut off 6 or 7 threads. I have my stock bones on my bike and can ride lowered all day long
